Short Response Questions
Please comment on what your TA did best as an instructor.8 responses
Availability, knowledge of the course material, teaching skills
Tatsuya was very good at supporting professor Montee in areas which she did not professionally specialize, lending a great deal of breadth to our class’s coverage.
Clarifying questions/concepts
Your explanations of difficult topics was very clear and concise. It was clear that you were very knowledgable about the course material and could always provide relevant and useful examples when students asked for them in class. Also, for the previous page about TA guest lecturing and recitation/discussion, I just put "very" because there was no N/A option. But I think you would have done great in these, too!
Very willing to help students with confusing concepts and did an excellent job of explaining those concepts
Tatsuya was very good at providing a clear angle on difficult topics we learned about in class which was very helpful in the lectures.
He cleared up difficult concepts during class - his explanations were very clear and thorough.
Tatsuya made himself consistently available and was very clear and helpful when answering students' questions.

Please comment on the areas in which you think the TA could improve their teaching.4 responses
I cannot think of any, he was terrific all year.
I don't really know
Honestly, I don't think there is much you have to improve on. It might have been nice to hear a guest lecture from you or Jessica, or a little bit more into what you guys study now, but your teaching was very good.

Specify suggestions that would help your TA improve their teaching skills. 6 responses
By giving tricks to help remember what the material is. Like coming up with mnemonics
I think being a little more assertive would help — Tatsuya’s additions were incredibly helpful and deserved to be heard more often.
I'm really not sure. Maybe offering another office hours slot? But this is a very small thing.
I think your teaching skills are amazing! Keep doing what you're doing!
